I cut my teeth on the Sierra company. Burned quite a few hours on Police Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, and Space quest. Please insert disk 3.....Ha! I remember how stoked I was to get a black and white VGA monitor.
P.S. If you haven't checked it out already, go to www*abandonia*com (*not enough post for direct links.)
It's an archive of abandoned software, some of which appears to be downloadable, but I haven't poked around there too much.
Fantastic memories brought up by those games. What about Monkey Island
Yes, got em all, thanks. And I visit them every once in while using DOSbox. The idea was to try and post a few of my (very) favourites in this thread. Which I hopefully will sometime in the future
what is the best game to play on windows 7?
This is very subjective and a matter of personal preference. I still think that most of top class games come from the late 80s till mid-90s. So if I am in the mood for a quick game, I still play these using the DOSbox emulator. Apart from that, I have always been an addicted Street Fighter player and in particular Super Street Fighter II Turbo and Street Fighter Alpha 2 (as well as a few more arcade classics released by Capcom on CPS1/2). These are pure Arcade games, running on "ROMs". On the PC you can use an emulator called Kawaks to play those.
If I was to pick a modern game as the best game - it would either be the latest of Quake or Doom. Still I d prefer Doom II Hell on Earth anytime over those two. Other modern games I favour are good race simulators such as GTR Evolution released by Simbim.
What I really don't like, are the latest Internet-based role-play games such as Warcraft and Diablo. Such as the ones people spend endless hours on at Internet Cafes. Can't stand those. I will stop here, as people will start shooting for daring saying such a thing
No one but you can say what's the best game out there
Syndicate and Syndicate Wars, instant classics. Also X-Wing v TIE Fighter are priceless but dont leave out Wing Commander and its 7+ 640k floppy disk change.
Anyone here played Barbarian or Sun Tzu´s Ancient Art of War (circa 1984)... I spent countless hours trying to master Ancient Art of War
That was too ancient even for me to get my hands on
Yeah... I figured as much, I was only a teenager back then....
Come to think that those same people who called me a nerd back in the day because I was one of those "weirdos" who had a PC at home (witch was RARE back then) now cant stop asking how do they get this or that done; dumb, everyday things, like paying your power or telephone bills on line... its funny how life works out to be.... guess Im the one laughing now....
Same here; I never bothered being labelled a guru; it was a privilege to enjoy games from back then. I think today's games are nowhere near - they lack that X Factor
